Blurb: He wrote a comedy. Fate directed a romance.

Drew Beaumont is bored of the same old roles: action hero, supervillain, romantic lead. He’s not going to let a fresh gay buddy comedy languish just because they can’t find him the right costar. No, Drew bats his eyelashes and convinces everyone that the movie’s writer should play Drew’s not-so-straight man.

Aspiring writer Steve Sopol has never had a screenplay optioned. Now one of Hollywood’s hottest properties wants to be in a movie Steve hasn’t finished writing—and he wants Steve as his costar. Turns out the chemistry between them is undeniable—on and offscreen.
Drew swore off dating in the biz, but Steve is the whole package: sharp, funny, humble, and cute. For Steve, though, giving in to the movie magic means the end of the privacy he cherishes. Will the credits roll before their ride into the sunset?

Review: Really cute story. I like it when the blurb and cover matches the story ☺
The story is short, but well fleshed out. Drew and Steve were really good together. Their budding friendship-to-attraction-to-relationship developed slowly and realistically. The secondary characters also add to the overall story, especially Rita (the dog). The movie plot is woven into the story and sort of becomes a ‘character’ of the over arching story (made me want to see the film actually made!).
Definitely a story that I will re-read!

4 stars out of 5
